Default Driver'* side CV shaft seal

Hey guys, I'm back on the '93 Lesabre...

The left/driver'* side CV shaft seal on the transmission is leaking, like bad. It'* a steady drip. Can it be replaced externally? And, I figure I'll have to remove the CV shaft...can that be done on these without removing the strut and all? Thanks guys.

CV shaft can be removed without removing the strut. I can remove it without even pulling the hub but its more difficult that way.

I don't know if the seal can be replaced externally.

I believe the seal is installed from the external side. The trouble would be getting the old seal out. They are quite stubborn.
